The Pregame Warm-Up Heisman Watch: Week 13
November 23, 2010 Leave a comment
This week we once again have Cameron Newton at the top of our list. If somebody else were to win, this is the week to put on a show and hope that Cam plays below average or loses. I really think the Oklahoma State trio will hurt one anothers chance in the Heisman race, just because of the whole splitting votes in that region thing.
In The Discussion:
Justin Blackmon WR Oklahoma State- He is the best WR in the country, his team is winning and has the stats to be here.
Brandon Weeden QB Oklahoma State- The problem with Blackmon and Weeden being here is that they might take votes away from each other. I guess that’s not really a problem for the Cowboys and their fans.
Ryan Mallett QB Arkansas- If he plays a great game against the tough LSU Defense, he should have a spot.
5th His team isn’t the greatest, but Denard Robinson’s stats are very comparable to Cam Newton’s this season. He has carried the Wolverines as far as he could this season. Just think, if the Wolverines had a defense, they could very well be in the running for the Big10. Thanks Greg Robinson for stealing Shoelace’s Heisman.
4th Andrew Luck has the Stanford Cardinal’s offense running smoothly right now. He makes all the throws and is a great leader. He may not win the Heisman, but he should win the NFL Draft jackpot in the Spring.
3rd Kellen Moore is about as good as they come. His smooth lefty release is a thing of beauty. I still think he gets the shaft because of the level of competition the Broncos play in the WAC. If BSU beats Nevada they have a very good chance to play in the Nat’l Championship game. I’m sure Moore would trade the Heisman for a BCS Championship trophy.
2nd LaMichael James is the best running back in college football, playing on the number 1 ranked Oregon Ducks. Any other year he would probably walk away with the trophy, but the year of Cam has pushed him to 2nd. He needs to have great games the last 2 weeks and keep his team undefeated to have a shot.
1st Cam Newton has to be the number one vote for every Heisman voter in the country. He is such an incredible talent that can do everything on the field. The only thing holding him back is off the field concerns about getting paid to play. I hope voters don’t make a big deal out of this until there is concrete proof that shows he was paid.
